Abstract

The history of women has been made to sway between various systems of exclusion, tolerance and, actually, one that renders things commonplace. By highlighting this course, the necessary connection between this field of study and the rest of historical research may be questioned in a new light. The idea of a woman's culture sprang from the success of the history of culture and representations; women's exploits and experience are now studied in their own right. The efficacy of such a notion and the great amount of works based on it mask the deadlocks that arise when exploiting it. Reconstituting women's discourse and specific skills is not enough. It must be grasped how a woman's culture may be built up within a system of uneven, conflicting and contradictory relationships; the political side of the question should also be part of the reflexion on male-female, and the usual divisions between social power and political power ought to be reconsidered.
